Depression may keep a person from holding down a job

Most Charlotte residents have battled their own personal struggles. While some have to cope with loss or addiction, others have faced adversity imposed upon them by outside forces. One of the most misunderstood issues that a person may suffer from is depression because it is not something that others can see or necessarily understand.

What if your rheumatoid arthritis keeps you from working?

North Carolina readers know that certain medical conditions could keep them from working, which means they could qualify for disability benefits. However, it is beneficial to remember that this is also the case for individuals who are suffering from internal conditions with few outside symptoms or non-fatal, but serious, medical conditions.

What rights to SSI recipients and applicants possess?

One reason that some North Carolina residents may put off applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration is their fear that they may not be eligible for such assistance from the federal government. They may not fully understand the requirements that a person must satisfy to receive SSI assistance. However, consultation with a disability benefits attorney can help them assuage this and other concerns.

Can I get disability benefits after a concussion?

Every year thousands of Americans suffer injuries to their brains when they are involved in accidents and incidents such as falls, vehicle collisions and work-related traumas. While some brain injuries will resolve themselves and will allow Charlotte residents to go back to living their normal lives, others can have devastating and long-lasting effects. This post will discuss traumatic brain injuries and how they may qualify someone for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.

Age and work credits may impact disability benefits award

If a Charlotte resident cannot work due to a mental or physical disability stemming from an injury or illness they should be able to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. However, only a qualifying disability may get the applicant the support they need in the form of benefits. A disability is not the only requirement a person must satisfy in order to get help from the Social Security Administration. An applicant for disability benefits must also have enough work credits from their past employment to qualify them for help.
